In a quiet forest sits Salaspils Memorial Ensemble, created in memory of thousands who died in a concentration camp at this site. Menacing dark-gray stone statues represent suffering men, women, and children. A large marble block marks a massive grave while a metronome beats from under the ground, simulating heartbeats. Look for numerous toys scattered around the yard, a reminder of the children who perished here from hunger, cold, and disease.

コンクリートの巨大な無機質の塊が広大な空間にまばらに立つ、ザ・ソビエトな感じのモニュメント群です。もともとはナチスドイツによるユダヤ人の収容所（虐殺というより強制労働所？だったらしい）。Vilnius→Rigaのツアーで立ち寄りました。 more »It is a group of monuments of the Soviet feeling that a huge mass of concrete stands sparsely in a vast space. Originally published as Nazi Germany's Jewish camps (rather than genocide) It seems to have been.) I stopped by for a tour of Vilnius → Riga.
This place is emotionally heavy if you read about its history. The memorial itself is an amazing work of art. The statues on the field each have a meaning behind them and one of them holds a secret. Thr continues heartbeat gives this place an unique atmosphere.
Great architecture, great setting, great story! A good example of Soviet brutalism
